A ‘Smart’ New Pro Communications Headset Comes


Here’s another new product set for an introduction at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas at the end of April.

The company best-knew for the Tempest system and the CrewCom professional wireless intercom system is displaying its SmartBoom LITE headset at the show.

Pilant Technologies, which can be found in Booth C12721 at the NAB Show, has given the SmartBoom LITE series some advanced features and design enhancements, including technology that allows the adjustable microphone boom to act as an on/off switch for quick muting.

“The versatile SmartBoom series of headsets is designed to meet the needs and industry demands of broadcast professionals in the most challenging production environments,” notes Gary Rosen, Global Sales Manager for Pliant. “The SmartBoom LITE headset incorporates all these features into a smaller, lightweight design perfect for enhanced mobility and flexibility. The headset is designed with an ambidextrous swiveling mic boom that fits the diverse needs and preferences of those working in the field.”

The headset also features a closed back on-ear design and a single-ear lightweight form factor for enhanced acoustic isolation. The mic boom is flexible and has a dynamic noise-cancelling cardioid microphone optimized for voice communications and outstanding audio quality.

The SmartBoom LITE headset comes with a comfort fit adjustable headband, replaceable ear pad and a 5ft/1.5m fixed cable. The LITE headset will be available in 4-pin XLR female, 5-pin XLR male and un-terminated versions, making the line adaptable to any professional intercom system.
